We are on an incredible 80-45 run “against the spread” as we sprint into “Rivalry Week” in Week 14 of the college football season. 

Record ATS: 110-86

Over/Under: 23-24

Leans: 55-42

Friday, Nov. 29

Bowling Green @ Buffalo (-28, 52.5)

Scoop: Bowling Green allows 39.1 points per game. Buffalo won easy last year and expect the same here. 

Play: Buffalo -28

Miami-OH @ Ball St (-3.5, 55.5)

Scoop: Expecting a tough tight game as the last 7 in this series have been decided by 6 pts or less. 

Play: MO +3.5

#17 Iowa (-5, 44.5) @ Nebraska

Scoop: Nebraska needs a win here to become bowl eligible, but are 0-8 ATS as a home dog and Iowa is an impressive 17-2-1 ATS as a road favorite. 

Play: Iowa -5

#19 Cincinnati @ #18 Memphis (-11.5, 58)

Scoop: If Cincy wins, they host Navy in the AAC title game…If Memphis wins, these 2 teams play again next week. I see Memphis 14+ better than Cincy. 

Play: Memphis -11.5

USF @ UCF (-23, 63.5)

Scoop: Some concern for UCF because they haven’t covered a spread in 2 months, but Charlie Strong’s USF team has tanked. 

Play: CF -23

Saturday, Nov. 30

#3 Clemson (-27, 51) @ South Carolina

Scoop: SC has one of the worst scoring offenses in football. Clemson has won the last 5 meetings by an avg 23 points. Clemson off a bye. Should roll. 

Play: Clem -27

Indiana (-7, 57) @ Purdue

Scoop: Indy is banged up and Purdue has covered the last 2 in this series. Boilermakers keep it respectable. 

Play: P-ew +7

Louisville @ Kentucky (-4, 53.5)

Scoop: Visitor is 10-1 last 11 in this series. 

Play: The Lou +4

UConn @ Temple (-27, 48)

Scoop: Temple should have beaten #19 Cincy last week. I think they can name their score here against lowly UConn. 

Play: Temple -27

Rutgers @ #10 Penn St (-40, 50)

Scoop: All the trends favor Rutgers. Hope PSU can shake off the tough loss last week @ Ohio St. Rutgers won’t stop them, it’s just a matter of IF PSU can get the juices going. 

Play: PSU -40

Vanderbilt @ Tennessee (-21, 45)

Scoop: UT was a train wreck, but have corrected their season and will play a bowl game. Vandy is going in the other direction. Tenn is laying a lot of points, but I’m going with the hot Vols. 

Play: Tenn -21

UAB (-3, 50.5) @ North Texas

Scoop: North Texas has shit themselves and I’ve been making $ off the Blazers. 

Play: UAB -3

Iowa St (-5.5, 46.5) @ Kansas St

Scoop: What has happened since KSU upset Oklahoma? Expect a tight one here, but think KSU plays well enough to cover or upset in the end. 

Play: KSU +5.5

Colorado @ #6 Utah (-28, 48.5)

Scoop: I feel like Utah keeps getting disrespected despite them blowing everyone out. Another name your score on this one. 

Play: Utes -28

BYU (-6, 39.5) @ San Diego St

Scoop: The total is less than 40 because BYU’s offense is weak & SDSU has a legit defense. 

Play: SDSU +6

Fresno St (-3, 61.5) @ San Jose St

Scoop: The underdog is 6-1 ATS in last 7 in this series and I actually think the wrong team is favored. 

Play: SJSU +3

Cal (-1, 50.5) @ UCLA 

Scoop: UCLA no longer has bowl aspirations. Line opened at UCLA -2.5 and now has dramatically flipped. 

Play: Cal -1

Army @ Hawaii (-3, 54)

Scoop: Hawaii has the tall order of stopping the triple option. And they are probably looking ahead to Boise St next week. 

Play: Army +3

Leans:

VT -2.5

App St -11.5

Charlotte -9.5

Nevada -7

La Tech -20.5

Miami FL -8.5

Florida St +18
